Satire is when you replicate the logics of power in a way that lampoons power. Replicating the logics of power in a way that lampoons the downtrodden is just regular, old violence.

Language is important. It's not easy when writing code articles to pay attention to all the little details, but words like "simple" "easy" or "obviously" might make the reader feel uncomfortable if they don't succeed in this easy task.
I used "you just have to" a lot 😶

Dear writers,

Easy ways to make your descriptions more inclusive:

🔹️ men and women ➡️ people
🔹️ both genders ➡️ all genders
🔹️ opposite gender ➡️ different gender
🔹️ brothers/sisters (if uncertain) ➡️ siblings
🔹️ he/she, his/her (if uncertain) ➡️ they, their

Thanks!

Today is "Cinnamonroll day" in Sweden.
No, I don't know why or when this happened and it sounds like a "We need to sell more cinnamon rolls!" holiday.

That said I noticed the people that DO "celebrate" it are mostly people new to Sweden - and I can get why. It's tricky AF to get into a new society, Swedes are also very excluding and hard to reach so any formal, or formalized, kind of social or common event is attractive as a gangway into the society.

There is now a "clear previous aliases" button on Steam. Useful if you need to remove your deadname or gendered names from the list.

Mastodon should really have a setting to allow you to toot to only people who you mutually follow

Programmers: Always use descriptive variable names

Mathematicians: Single letter variable names always, ideally from obscure/dead alphabets

People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start

Internet culture as such a weird combination of "everything is flawlessly recorded forever" and "you just had to be there". Everything is simultaneously permanent and ephemeral. We're drowning in records that have no context, and context that has no records

gender is a scam invented by bathroom companies in the 1960's in order to sell more bathrooms

Hey fediverse if you want a game about disaster queers fighting fascists while using mechs made out of meat, buy the shit out of Extreme Meatpunks Forever.

Episodic; the first season is almost complete.

That prepaid 4G SIM card with unlimited data was in my phone and activated before I could even fill in the form (only name and birth date) or get my wallet out. Free, fast wifi without MITM crap throughout the entire airport. Shower rooms in the baggage claim area. High-speed train connection to the city's main station. #TaiwanLog
